When to Plant

You can plant your cool weather crops when there is no longer a
danger of a hard frost and most days are above 50 Fahrenheit. You
might need to cover once or twice.

Tender plants like tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant should not be put
out until the average last frost date.

And very tender plants need to wait until all danger of frost is
past, days are warm, the soil has warmed up, and nights no longer get
really cold.

Always harden off your transplants in the pots before transplanting
by setting them outside for at least 2 days.

If you have clean manure you need to make use of, it is definitely
best to put it in the ground several weeks or months before
planting. Putting it in fresh puts you at risk of burning your
tender plants and emerging seedlings.
